Equality and diversity is a topic that’s relevant for all workplaces, regardless of whether you employ two people or two hundred people, and irrespective of whether you work in an office, a warehouse or on a shop floor.
As of September 2015, there were 31.21 million people in work in the UK. That’s 31.21 million different opinions, ways of thinking and opportunities for new ideas.
The Equality Act was introduced in the UK to eliminate unlawful discrimination, advance equal opportunities and promote good relations between people. The Act makes it unlawful for employers to discriminate against workers and puts an onus on businesses to prohibit prejudicial behaviour and make adjustments so that everyone has access to the same opportunities. All workplaces must comply with the Act and must be seen to be actively promoting equality and diversity amongst employees.
We can help you meet your legal obligations. Increase your productivity and enhance your social corporate responsibility.
I have helped set up 3 equality charities in York: York LGBT Forum, York Pride and York LGBT History Month and I am currently a trustee of two of these charities. I have also set up projects in Mental Health Peer Support, and offer support to Asylum Seekers and Refugees. I guest lecture at the University of York on the MA and BA Social Work Course. I have worked with disabled people, people who experience mental-ill health and helped York become a Human Rights City. Below are videos showcasing some of these projects.
I have 10 years experience delivering training in York and North Yorkshire to businesses, public sector organisations and charities. I have also written policies and procedures focusing on Equality and Data Protection for different organisations. I have a BA (Hons) Counselling Studies Degree from York St John University. During my degree I developed my training skills by offering my experience and knowledge of LGBT and BME issues. This inspired me to develop training on these subjects.
After my counselling degree, I worked for a number of organisations which supported people with Mental ill-Health, Learning Difficulties and Sexual Health needs. From this I have developed bespoke training covering many topics.
When I'm not working, I like to paint, write poetry and visit historical buildings.
